Cowhide rug

I finally found a cowhide rug that was a really great price!!!! I was walking the other week in our downtown and saw the cowhide rug folded up in an antique store window.The day I saw it the store was closed so I didn't know how much it was going for or how big it was. I kept talking about it but never went to see what the hours were at the store and finally I was coloring a friends hair and asked about the owner of the store.I knew he knew the owner and he called him up and asked about the cowhide.So we agreed on a price and now it is mine!!!!!! I got it this Sat. I am beyond excited since I have been looking for one for soooo long. I am playing around with where it will end up.I would love it on the floor in the living room but I have a small dog that I am afraid would ruin it.For now I have it draped over our new modern sofa.Our house has an artistic ecletic look so I think it would work.Here are photos of the different looks. The photos with the sofa covered with throws and pillows is how I keep the sofa covered daily because of the dogs!!!!

Julian's party

We finally had Julian's birthday party!!!!! It was a small affair but fun was had by all!!!! My good friend Maureen came and stayed for the weekend so that was great.It has been a while since she has been here and luckily we have a brand new sofa that is comfy to sleep on.It is not an antique,it is actually modern but it blends nicely with the victorian sofa( leopard one).I am on the lookout for an antique settee for the otherside of the room.Anyway here are a few photos.
